Forum: feature_films Subject: is Virus 復活の日 really PD?

I'm checking to sort of make sure that Virus is really PD,
there's very little about it on the forum, and thought
it should be ok to ask.
I'm a little nervous, as it was a pretty expensive movie
to make, and envision some producer scheme, to trick
people into thinking its PD to recoup some of the
money lost :D... I just remember a few other movies
that used to be on IA that were taken down
due to I think GATT, and I just want to be very careful! :D
I'm reasonably certain that IA is even more thorough.

I'm going to go rewatch it right now to see if there's a copyright symbol in it...
So would this be because they forgot to register the American version of the
Japanese film? I read that it was the most expensive
film ever made for its time, so it just seems pretty crazy... Well, there is a copyright symbol at the
end of the movie, so I have no idea.

Good question. The version found at
http://www.archive.org/details/Virus_Fukkatsu_no_hi
has this in the end credits:
(copyright symbol) 1980 by Michael Minor

Later it has
(copyright symbol) 1980 KADOKAWAFILM

Also, I know one version that's around is an extended
directors cut, and I bet that one is definitely
copyrighted properly. :D
